Dried mealworms are a fantastic source of energy and protein for insectivorous wild birds such as Robins, Wrens, Tits, Blackbirds and Song Thrushes.None of these popular visitors to your garden will be able to resist a bowl of mealworms on the bird table.
Soak them in warm water for 30 minutes before you feed them to add in extra moisture and hydration for your garden birds.
Mealworms are the larvae of the Yellow Mealworm Beetle - the adult beetles are shiny dark-brown or black - their larvae are honey-yellow. Dried mealworms retain all this protein and fat but without the wriggle! They are also easier to store than their live counterparts and much more affordable.
How To Feed Mealworms
Sprinkle as they are or rehydrate by soaking in warm water for a few minutes. Although our dried mealworms are a year-round bird food, it is recommended during Spring & Summer time to soak them in warm water before feeding as adult birds may be feeding them to their young.
Ivel Valley is one of the only places online where you can buy dried mealworms in bulk. With our 12.55kg bulk mealworms box you get the best value for money and a box of worms that will store well and keep your garden birds fed for a long time!
How To Store Your Mealworms
Dried mealworms should be stored in a cool dry location. Mealworms that are stored in this way can last months without spoiling. Our 3kg storage containers are ideal to store your mealworms in a secure, dry place.
